The Blue Oval team has won seven of the past seven races. It was led by Kevin Harvick, the 2014 series winner with four victories.
It doesn’t make sense that Chevrolet and Toyota drivers are among the top seven options to win Sunday Firekeepers Casino 400..
The Chevys might have a chance, but only one Toyota has taken the checkered flag since Kyle Busch won 11 years ago.
We like Kevin Harvick winning this Sunday. Although Harvick, Rodney Childers, the crew chief, have struggled to get up-to speed in the Next Gen car’s new technology, Harvick’s track record can’t be ignored.
It’s an extreme long shot at +2500 via DraftKings Sportsbook, but we’re ready to roll the dice.
Ryan Blaney returns to Michigan in search of his first win of the season
Ryan Blaney, the reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion at Michigan International Speedway is driving a Ford.
But Blaney is yet to reach Victory Lane, as the driver for the No. 12 Team Penske Mustang still has to sweat making the Playoff, with four races left in the regular season.
Though we don’t like Blaney to win on Sunday, we do think he’ll finish in the top three and recommend a bet to that effect at +350.
With Playoff Nearing, it’s time for a Kyle Larson turnaround
Kyle Larson’s performance at last Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course was a highlight that he won’t forget.
In the final laps Larson was speeding towards Turn 1 at an excessive pace, losing control, and nearly destroying the Chevrolet of Ty Dillon.
That’s the way things have been going lately for the reigning series champion, who has recorded finishes of 13th, 14th, fifth and 35th in his last four races. Larson was able to win his first race at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, Calif. which is the closest track to Michigan.
But that was February and Larson hasn’t been in a position to win a race since. So we advise to steer clear of Larson. Instead, our third recommendation is to back Blaney at -110 in a head-to-head matchup against Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr.
